How do you adjust the choke on a 1986 F-150 with new carb 1 brl. that does not set to start but stays closed?

Without seeing it it is impossible to correctly diagnoise. Take it to a garage.

The "choke" light comes on to warn you that the choke is malfunctioning. Sucking gas mileage sure sounds like the choke is "on" all the time. That's why the light stays on. choke is wired in series with the oil pressure sending unit,had the exact same problem with my 84, replaced the oil sender which is mounted on the side of the engine block and all is good now

No. Most, if not all, auto choke systems work off the temperature of the engine (usually the intake manifold). When the engine is cold, the choke provides a richer fuel mixture to aid starting and help smooth running. As the engine temp increases, the choke should slowly open. If the choke stays 'closed', fuel consumption will increase drastically, the engine's cylinders will become choked, the spark plugs may become coated with soot and fail to spark and the exhaust may emit smoke.
